We often hear about this god particle and then we got confused. What the hell really this god practical is? Why it is called god practical. Is it something related directly to god? And if not, then why so much of hype about this particle?
Before diving into the realm of this hype, first, let’s try to find the rational side of this god practical and demystify everything.
So what is god particle?
Honestly god particle is nothing related to god. It is a particle which is also known as the Higgs boson.
Before trying to figure out what exactly this Higgs boson is, first let’s get to know the standard model of practical physics. Yup!!! Standard model of practical physics.
So now what is this Standard model?
Sounds tough to understand, right!!! But trust me it won’t be that much of tough. Let’s simplify it now. The standard model is simply a theory in Particle Physics which was developed in the early 1970s.
According to this theory entire universe is made of 12 different particles. The 11 particles predicted by this model have been discovered. But this model still has a missing piece which is known as the Higgs boson. Yup!!! That missing particle is Higgs boson, which is also known as ‘god particle’.
Okay, now we have figured out what this god practice is? But why this Higgs are so much of importance?
This Higgs is really holds so much of importance because the Higgs is the particle which gives other particles their mass. Sounds crazy to hear, but it is true. This Higgs are responsible for the mass in everything. As you all know, the mass is as an intrinsic property of all things and physicists believe that without the Higgs boson, mass fundamentally doesn’t exist. That’s why this particle very important because it’s finding would let us know much more about the formation of the Universe. Yo!!!!!!!!
So, Higgs boson explained
The Higgs particle was proposed in the 1960s by British physicist Peter Higgs. He also got the Nobel Prize for it. While the sub-atomic particle Boson is named after Indian physicist Satyendra Nath Bose.
The confirmation of a Higgs boson discovery came in 2012 after a multi-decade search.
Where this Higgs boson will be discovered?
This will be discovered in an advanced laboratory known as CERN.
CREN is abbreviation of The European Organization for Nuclear Research. This is the world’s largest nuclear physics laboratory situated in Geneva, Switzerland. It is located 328 feet underground in a 17-mile long tunnel.
How scientists will find God particle?
In the large hadron collider of CREN, scientists will fire the beam of protons in opposite directions. It will collide against each other. Millions of particle collisions will be done in a second. It will create the condition just after the Big Bang. Big bang is considered to be the responsible for the creation of the universe.
And hence we can get to know that how mass was formed.
